Healthcare organizations understand that SDOH factors can improve health outcomes and minimize medical costs. However, many still miss the opportunity to maximize the use of SDOH data to improve patient outcomes.
Given that social determinants of health (SDOH) can come from a variety of sources, organizations may not fully understand what SDOH data to use to maximize the accuracy of predictive analytics, or how to integrate the data into their current workflows. They also may not understand how to effectively use the insights derived from SDOH data to identify populations with barriers to care and/or stage interventions to influence healthy behaviors, which is critical to affecting overall health. Finally, many healthcare organizations recognize the value of SDOH data but simply have no idea where to start.
Based on our experience working with healthcare organizations as they design SDOH initiatives, we’ve compiled our best practices and knowledge into this playbook. Building a successful business case is essential to getting any SDOH initiative off the ground and requires a thorough analysis of your patient/member population to determine a focus as well as a methodology for connecting the use case to ROI to get leadership and other stakeholder buy-in.
